WWE Announces NXT Main Events for January 2016
WWE is in the midst of a major workrate boom thanks to the amazing talents of the NXT brand. So it’s no surprise that the company is trying to pin down the next big title matches for the future.
Case in point, after defeating Nia Jax at NXT Takeover London, Bayley will defend the NXT Women’s Championship against Carmella. Yes, Carmella. I can’t even pretend like this isn’t surprising. Sure, Carmella has grown by leaps and bounds, but leaping to the #1 contendership seems kind of crazy right now. With that said, I’m kind of interested to see what Carmella can do as a serious competitor. Lord knows, she’s been in NXT long enough to have developed as a single competitor. I don’t think she should get the title, but I definitely want to see what she’s capable of doing.
Anyway, the match is scheduled for the NXT live event that’s scheduled for Friday, January 22nd at the CFE Arena at the University of Central Florida.
In addition to Bayley vs. Carmella for the Women’s Title, we’ll have Samoa Joe vs. Sami Zayn to determine the new No. 1 contender for the NXT champion Finn Balor. Honestly, it should be an awesome show. If nothing else, NXT is the most consistently awesome element of the WWE product today, so I don’t doubt that this show will be fantastic.
